Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside 'needs to take a big jump' in 2020 now that he is fully healthy, according to general manager Howie Roseman.
Huddle Up: The second-round pick had a disappointing rookie year, managing just 10 catches for 169 yards. Arcega-Whiteside should be given a chance to make a jump and carve out a steady role, but he's just a stash candidate in dynasty leagues until he starts producing on the field.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery had the option in his contract exercised Friday, March 27.
Huddle Up: Jeffery's status with the team is still uncertain, so fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation. He was limited to 10 games last season because of injuries and finished with 490 receiving yards. He could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in 2020 depending on his situation.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz had the option in his contract exercised Friday, March 27.
Huddle Up: Wentz finished the 2019 season with 4,039 yards and 27 touchdowns. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues next season.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz on Thursday, March 26, had his 2021 contract option exercised by the team. He will earn $8.25 million in 2021, and talks on an additional extension are expected to pick up in the coming months.
Huddle Up: Ertz didn't post the record figures he did in 2018, but he still led the Eagles and finished fifth among fantasy tight ends with 88 receptions for 916 yards and six TDs on 135 targets in 2019. Fellow Philly TE Dallas Geodert hasn't gone anywhere, but Ertz remains a TE1 in all formats.

Detroit Lions CB Darius Slay was acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, March 19, for an undisclosed package. The Eagles also signed him to a long-term contract that puts him among the highest-paid at the position as part of the deal. The contract is for three years and $50 million with $30 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Slay is one of the better corners in the game, but he's not a good fantasy asset.

Updating a previous report, the agent for Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery refuted a claim that his client would welcome a trade to another team. In a Twitter post Friday, Feb. 21, agent Tory Dandy wrote that Jeffery 'loves being in the city of Philly and playing for the Eagles.'
Huddle Up: The 30-year-old Jeffery is coming off a disappointing 2019 campaign where he only had 43 receptions for 490 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games, marking his worst statistical performance since his rookie season in 2012. He is also in the middle of a nine-month recovery period from Lisfranc surgery last December, so his trade value couldn't be much lower. At best, Jeffery should be viewed as a WR4 for next season's fantasy drafts.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) is fully amenable with a trade this offseason and 'would welcome the change of scenery,' according to story published by The Athletic on Friday, Feb. 21.
Huddle Up: While the timing appears right for both the Eagles and Jeffery to move on, Jeffery's value is currently at a low with the wideout just turning 30 and facing a nine-month recovery from Lisfranc foot surgery in December. With the question marks and coming off his least-productive season (43 catches-490 yards-4 TDs) since his rookie year of 2012, Jeffery has now slid down into WR4 territory for fantasy.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders' 1,327 yards from scrimmage in 2019 ranked 16th in the NFL, and his 50 receptions were the most among rookie running backs.
Huddle Up: As expected, Sanders saw his role grow throughout the year, and he eventually cemented himself as Philadelphia's lead back. He should lead the ground attack from Day 1 in 2020, making him a high-end RB2 option in all formats.
Posted 1/19/2020 8:14 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz will be a candidate for a contract extension this offseason.
Huddle Up: Ertz has been one of the top tight ends in the NFL over the last few seasons and should be a main option in the passing game for the Eagles again in 2020. He will be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues next season.
Posted 1/10/2020 5:28 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Josh McCown (hamstring) played the second half of the NFC wild-card game Sunday, Jan. 5, with a torn hamstring and is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday, Jan. 14.
Huddle Up: Shines a better light on the 40-year-old's 18-of-24, 174-yard day with 23 rushing yards on five carries, but expect Philly to have a new No. 2 QB next season, especially given starter Carson Wentz's injury track record.
Posted 1/06/2020 5:29 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (knee) was spotted wearing a brace on his left knee and on crutches following the team's NFC Wild Card loss to the Seattle Seahawks, but he insisted he will not require offseason surgery.
Huddle Up: Although his rookie season came to a bit of a rough end thanks to ankle and knee injuries, Sanders became only the seventh rookie in league history to account for 800 rushing yards and 500 receiving yards. With Jordan Howard set to become a free agent this spring, the Penn State alum should be poised to take a firm grasp on the starting job in Philadelphia and serve as a high-end RB2 for fantasy purposes.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (head) will not return to the NFC Wild Card Game against the Seattle Seahawks after leaving due to a head injury in the first half, head coach Doug Pederson confirmed at halftime. QB Josh McCown will take the reins the rest of the way.
Huddle Up: There will be a lot of uncertainty if the Eagles are able to advance to face the Green Bay Packers. If Wentz is unavailable, it would be McCown called upon to continue leading the team.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (back, ribs) is officially active for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Ertz should have a big part of the passing game despite the injuries and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.
Posted 1/04/2020 7:56 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ribs, kidney) was medically cleared on Saturday, Jan. 4, and will play in the team's wild-card playoff game Sunday, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Huge news for an Eagles' offense that has been devastated by injuries. Ertz caught 12-of-14 targets for 91 yards and a TD in the Week 12 loss to the Seahawks, and should be available as an elite fantasy playoff option, pending the release of Philly's pre-game inactives list Sunday.
Posted 1/03/2020 8:41 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 3, and is not on the injury report for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Sanders probably will receive most of the work at running back during the playoff game and should be a must-start option in all leagues.
Posted 1/03/2020 7:56 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) said Friday, Jan. 3, that he's 'good to go' for Sunday's wild-card card game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: The Eagles have yet to make any kind of decision on Sanders, who participated in practice Friday for the first time all week, and the guess is we'll have to wait until the inactives list is posted Sunday afternoon to gain any final clarity.
Posted 1/03/2020 3:34 pm UTC
Updating an earlier report, Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ribs, kidney) still hasn't been cleared for contact Friday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: Generally, a player that hasn't been cleared for contact on Friday is a very ominous sign. However, the team sounded optimistic Ertz had a chance to play. He'll be an elite TE1 in playoff leagues, but he's a risky DFS play for the price.
Posted 1/01/2020 8:58 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (back, ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 1.
Huddle Up: Ertz has not been cleared for contact at this point, so he may be a game-time decision for the playoff game. He is a must-start option if healthy, but fantasy players should have other tight ends available in case he is ruled out.
Posted 1/01/2020 8:45 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 1.
Huddle Up: Sanders suffered the injury in the last regular season game and can be considered questionable for the playoff game. Fantasy players will know more about his status later in the week. He can be a starting option in fantasy leagues if he plays.
Posted 1/01/2020 4:06 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ribs, kidney) has yet to be cleared for contact Wednesday, Jan. 1.
Huddle Up: The lacerated kidney is what is most worrisome. Keep an eye on him the next couple of days, and Dallas Goedert could wind up being a slam-dunk play.
Posted 12/31/2019 5:21 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) has a low-grade, low-ankle sprain. He's expected to be OK for the playoff game Sunday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Sanders is dealing with inflammation, but he shouldn't be restricted enough to be lower than a low-end RB1 in playoff pools.
Posted 12/30/2019 4:52 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) will have an MRI on his sprained ankle Monday, Dec. 30. His status for the Wild Card game against the Seattle Seahawks is to be determined.
Huddle Up: Sanders would be a low-end RB1 in playoff pools if he's able to go. Jordan Howard could re-emerge as an RB2 if Sanders is limited.
